2024 John Oxley Library Fellow
The 2024 John Oxley Library Fellowship was awarded to Dr John Willsteed for his project, Dive For Your Memory – Queensland music stories.
John's project will develop a methodology for extending engagement with oral histories in institutional collections. Its intention is to create new knowledge about music in Queensland. It will use the existing John Oxley Library collections, as well as adding to these collections by filming interviews with musicians from across the state.

2024 John Oxley Library Honorary Fellow
The 2024 John Oxley Library Honorary Fellowship was awarded to Dr Eun-ji Amy Kim and Aaron Teo for their project, Culinary Crossroads: history of Asian-Australian eateries and migration policies in Queensland.
This project aims to delve into how changes in Australia's contemporary migration policies, spanning from the 1940s to the present, have influenced Asian restaurant owners. The goal is to gain insight into the broader impact of multiculturalist policies on Asian-Australians, particularly in Queensland.
